Panasonic delivers AG-DV20 camcorder

August 7, 2006

Panasonic is now shipping its AG-DVC20, a new 4.4lb, shoulder-mount 3-CCD mini-DV camcorder. The camcorder is equipped with three 460,000-pixel CCDs, an optical 10X optical zoom and 500X digital zoom, and a digital electronic image stabilizer to compensate for jitter and vibration.

The camera's new One-Touch Navigation puts all basic controls within easy reach of the operator, allowing push-button operation of the record mode or VCR playback, backlight compensation, fade in/out and microphone levels.

Newly developed features include a Power LCD mode, which brightens the backlight of the LCD monitor when in sunny areas, and Color Night View mode, which permits viewing at minimum illumination of 0 lux in low light environments. Its Zero Lux Night View mode turns the LCD into a light source when turned towards the subject (within three feet), according to the company.
